Eh-oh Canberra! The magical world of Teletubbies is on its way – but probably not exactly how you remember it.

It’s the latest themed pop-up bar planned for Canberra and the organisers say it’s designed to make your childhood dreams come true. Not sure how many children dreamed of getting tipsy with Dipsy or sharing a drink with Tinky Winky but that’s on the cards at a secret location in the capital from 31 July to 31 December.

“Get ready for BIG HUGS – it’s time to live out all your childhood dreams!” the press release trumpets. “A real-life Teletubbyland set is being built and you are invited to an exclusive event inside our Teletubbies Home Dome.”

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink options will be available and the organisers say you may even spot Tinky Winky, Po, Laa-Laa and Dipsy during the 90-minute Teletubbyland experience

The event is inspired by the British children’s TV series from the 1990s. It will have you sipping cocktails and mocktails at a Teletubbies-themed cocktail bar, playing plenty of games and listening to the best 90s music throwbacks from a live DJ.

With family-friendly sessions for all ages and options for over 18s, organisers say this limited-time event will have you nostalgic and reminiscing on your childhood as you sip on Tubby Custard cocktails and nibble on some tasty Tubby Toast.
